Makeover Monday Challenge #3- Celebrate Today card

Hello everyone! Today, I am sharing the card I created for the Makeover Monday Challenge issued by Andrea Walford. This week, Andrea was inspired by this pretty snowflake card by Danielle Flanders of Homespun from the Heart.  

Here is Andrea’s beautiful card

Here is my card…

Supplies- card stock: Fresh Asparagus, Chocolate Brown(GinaK Designs)  paper: Curio(BasicGrey)  focal image: Birds & Botanicals Images & Journal Notes(Crafty Secrets)  stamp: Out on a Limb Sentiments(PTI)  ink: Soft Suede(Stampin’ Up!)  baker’s twine(Martha Stewart Crafts)  yellow flower(Prima)  copper brad(GinaK Designs)  Labels Four Nestabilities(Spellbinders) 

I was inspired by the whole design really. I especially liked the minimal stamping. I was able to use one of the pretty images from some journaling tags I’ve had for years. That is what I am enjoying so much about the Makeover Monday Challenges…I am forced to look thru my things with fresh eyes and I am discovering goodies I had long forgotten. I really like the layout of the original piece too. The image panel is slightly higher than the top of the card and it takes up quite a bit of ‘real estate’ on the card front. I will definitely be using this layout again. You can see that Danielle used a bit of spray paint on her card. And although you can’t see it, Andrea used glimmer mist on hers. I gave mine a generous shot of my homemade shimmer spray. It just makes everything so sparkly and I love that!
I had so much fun gathering materials for this challenge. I look forward to what Andrea is going to share with us each Monday. You might consider checking out the Makeover Monday Challenges, she offers up some AWESOME prizes! The prize for this week is this adorable Blitzen Holiday Planner!

Thank you so much for visiting me today!
